Jack Porter - 2019
I was a soldier, fighting for the lives of the whole damned world, when I went and got myself obliterated by this alien f*ck. I figured that was it. Game over, done. But then I woke up in a different body, in a strange world full of dust and ruins, with awesome martial arts skills I’d never had before. Not to mention a chi gift thing that seemed to work a lot like magic. I had no clue why or how it all happened. All I knew was that there were these monster girls I was supposed to protect from an endless horde of semi-human things that wanted us all dead. And there were these words seared into my brain like a motivational quote: You can save them. You can save ALL of them. Of course, I had no clue who the words referred to, whether there was any truth to them at all, or where to f*cking begin. Rogan’s Monsters: Wastelands follows our hero's sword-swinging adventure across the wastes of a strange new world. It is the first book in a harem series that includes isekai, wuxia, xianxia elements (martial arts and magic), as well as a few gamelit mechanisms for good measure. Set (mostly) in a post-apocalyptic world, it contains violence, nudity, and sex, as well as alien invasions, wraiths, and monster girls. Read at your own risk.
